Some good news (: My story The Dog in the Mist has been accepted for Less Than Three Press’ upcoming The Bestiary collection.
The story is approximately 32,000 words, and it’s set in Okehampton and the surrounding Dartmoor area, incorporating a few different English and Devonshire myths.
The Dog in the Mist should be available as an individual e-book or as part of a bundle, and later as part of a paperback anthology. No idea on the release date yet, but I’ll update when I have more information.
I don’t have an official summary yet, so this will probably change a bit, but for now, here’s my draft summary:
Dorian is unlucky. He’s lost his parents, his best friend, and now he’s lost his gran as well. And to top it all off, he’s being stalked by a dog—a dog that’s bigger than a dog has any right to be, a dog that brings death in its wake. Soon, Dorian will learn that all the things he pushed from his mind, all the stories he was told as a kid about faeries and ghosts and monsters, are real. And maybe, just maybe, they can help him reclaim some of what he’s lost.
I’m quite fond of these boys. I think I’ll miss writing them.
